*Year 5 children will also have the opportunity to go swimming on Friday afternoons at some point in the year.

Please ensure that children have a suitable PE kit at all times and that they remove all jewellery for these lessons.  We expect all children to be able to remove their own jewellery (including earrings) by themselves and long hair must be tied up.

SATs

SATs are taken by year 6 children in May every year. In the lead up to this, year 6 children will be given CGP revision guides (Maths and Grammar) which will replace Home Learning after Christmas. Pages to complete will be set weekly. There is a SATs information evening for parents taking place in January which will explain this further.

Key information:

Each class will hold an assembly once throughout the year. The assembly will take place 9.10-9.30am approx. Parents are invited to come in and watch the assembly and are also given the opportunity to visit their child’s class for 30 minutes after to watch a Maths or English lesson being taught.

After SATs, the year 6 children go on a 5 day residential to Whitemoor Lakes. This is a fantastic week enjoyed by all.

In Summer 2, year 6 children will be preparing for their leaver’s production in recognition of their time at Brixworth Primary School. This will be an incredibly enjoyable and fun-filled way to end their final primary school year.

Parents can support their children's learning through reading and discussing the books daily, and by giving children the opportunity to visit the local library to read about and research our topics.

If you would like to discuss how you can help your child at home, please see your child's class teacher. We welcome parental involvement in the life of our school.

If you have any questions about our years 5/6 phase please do not hesitate to make an appointment with our phase leader Miss Stockbridge.
